Rumor Report: Interactive/Electronic Porgs

A lot of squawking has been happening since the Porgs were officially revealed in the behind the scenes video for The Last Jedi at D23. Upon revisiting a few coded listings for products, “IP Beak” is all but officially confirmed to be an Interactive Plush Porg. Nothing earth shattering or previously theorized, but as we approach Force Friday II, and unofficial checklists are being put together, it’s helpful to know what these things are despite their coded aliases.

It Is Just a Flesh Wound (or is it?)

While reviewing some of the new images in Rebelscum’s SDCC coverage, I noticed what looks like a possible painted “flesh wound” on one of the SDCC samples for Rey. As you can see above, the one on the left (shown today at the Hasbro Breakfast) has a bloody slice/scratch on the right arm, but the figure on the right from the show floor doesn’t – yet there looks to be a sculpted “deformity” sans blood. What do you think – battle-damage or a simple errant paint job? A variant between the SDCC release and the retail version?

Target Exclusive 6″ TBS Figure for The Last Jedi?

Upon revisiting our Target DPCI list we posted on July 2, one of the listings (087-06-8397) is now updated with a new coded description: “E8 BL Tango Black”. Since it is pretty specific and is reported as having a 10/1 release date and $19.99 price point, we suspect this may be an exclusive figure for The Last Jedi.

We shall see…. we shall see.*

*Not a hint

Rumor Report: The Last Jedi SWU Figure Assortment

Remember how things were broken down for The Force Awakens 3.75″ basic figures? Figures and vehicles were grouped into 4 categories: “Forest”, “Snow”, “Desert” and “Space”. For The Last Jedi, the Star Wars Universe (SWU) is broken down into two categories, “Orange” and “Teal”. These color designation may have some alternate definition later on, but for now this is how they are being grouped.

More to come….
